Manage keys

Options for managing keys in GoQuorum include:

  • keystore files - As with geth, you can store keys in password-protected keystore files.
  • clef - Introduced in GoQuorum v2.6.0, clef runs as a standalone process that increases flexibility and security by handling GoQuorum's account management responsibilities.
  • account plugins - Introduced in GoQuorum v2.7.0, account plugins allow you to extend GoQuorum or clef with alternative methods of managing accounts.
